Manhood and the Power of Glory
February 26, 1990 | TIME | by Lance Morrow

The movie Glory is, as the historian James M. McPherson has written, the most powerful and historically accurate film ever made about the American Civil War. But Glory, which tells the story of one of the war’s first black regiments, has deeper meaning. The movie addresses the most profound theme of race in America in 1990. Glory is about black manhood and responsibility.
The worst problems of the black underclass today—young black men murdering other young black men; young black males fathering children of females who are virtually children themselves; young blacks lost to crack and heroin—alI connect directly to black manhood and responsibility.

We make our own social programs
Jul. 28 2012 | The Globe and Mail |Craig Christie.

An element of a solution in this article: a parent (or parents) that demonstrated good work ethic and who promotes/instills the importance of education, to their kids. Without that, anything that is undertaken by organisations (government or non-government) will start out the gate with a handicap.

Best career advancement: Bottoms up
Jul 1993 | Inc. Vol. 15, Iss. 7; pg. 58, 2 pgs| Anonymous.
Nowhere are the opportunities for advancement as dramatic as in
fast-growing companies. "There's no ladder to climb," says Jon Goodman,
director of the Entrepreneur Program at the University of Southern
California in Los Angeles. "They're building the ladder as they grow."
So the challenge is to hire the kinds of employees that will help build
the ladder. "You don't want to advance--you want to enlarge," adds
Goodman. "Your technical skills become greater; you build your resume in
terms of span of control and responsibility."
